Something not right?

Description

*No overnight Parking
.....
Standard Rest Area off Interstate 90. You can access it from the eastbound or westbound sides. I noticed the local police going thru during the night. WY allows you to sleep in your vehicle, but there is a “No Overnight Parking” sign so it’s only good for a few hours rest. Running water bathrooms, no showers.

Report Check-In

The “No Overnight Parking” sign is prominently displayed and applies to the entire parking lot. Even semi trucks were not staying long during the few nighttime hours I was here.

No problem sleeping in vehicle, saw police directing RV where to stay overnight. Somewhat private if you park to right as you enter by grass. Train runs all night so plenty of ambient noise...

Decent and clean. lots of noise from highway and trains. which doesn't bother me at all. its like white noise to me. It did wake the grand kids every 2 hours though.
